THE MAHARAJA BALL: A night fused with Nigerian & Indian Culture

The Poosh & the KSL Foundation are organizing  Maharaja ball at Eko Hotel&Suites Victoria Island, Lagos.

The Indian themed Maharaja Ball will be a night of opulence highlighting the Indian royalties of times past and present,  marriage of characteristic Maharaja fortune with accents of traditional Nigerian culture. Blending the Indian culture together with the Nigerian, we will have a night filled with Saris, Turbans, Jewels, dazzling Afro-Indian luxury and more.



The DSFN is a non-governmental, non-political, not-for-profit association of children with Down Syndrome, as well as their parents, guardians, care givers and other interested stakeholders. Most of these children are neglected, relegated, or abandoned by their parents and society on the basis of culture and myths that tend to stigmatize them and their family. They are equally abused physically and sexually with impunity. In extreme cases even their rights to life itself is denied them.

The Foundation initiated her health intervention initiative (Save-a-Life Project) that have benefitted over 40 babies with Down Syndrome who have congenital heart defects to receive corrective surgery abroad; our educational intervention and vocational training efforts to make them self-dependent as well as our advocacy for these special persons over the years which earned us a representation during the official declaration of March 21 as the World Down Syndrome Day which held at the United Nations (UN) Headquarters in New York in 2013.

The DSFN organization is proud to work with Poosh and the KSL Foundation to bring to life the Maharaja Ball in aid of the organization.

The night also welcomes prominent Indian Designer Tarun Tahiliani who’s Spring Summer 2015 collection will hit the runway. Hailed the ‘Karl Lagerfield of India’ Tarun Tahiliani is a high-fashion brand with a view in the present moment, but, ultimately much steeped in the Indian traditions of draped form and the techniques that millions of Indian craftspeople imbibe with love. The silhouettes combine western notions of cut, construct and finish but using Indian heritage and craftsmanship.



Henna designers and turban wrappers will welcome our guests to the ball, setting the theme for the evening and there will also be a dance performance and entertainment by renowned performers. Guests will also experience fine Indian cuisine.
